• Charlotte, CMPD officer want civil lawsuit put on hold


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The city of Charlotte and a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department officer charged with killing an unarmed man want a civil lawsuit put on hold until the criminal case is over.

    Jonathan Ferrell's family filed the civil suit accusing Officer Randall Kerrick, CMPD Chief Rodney Monroe, the city and the county of gross negligence in Ferrell's death. Ferrell did not have a weapon when Kerrick shot him in October.

    Kerrick said the shooting was self-defense.

    A second grand jury indicted Kerrick on voluntary manslaughter charges last month.

    A trial date has not been set.
